  2. How You Can Be Involved

It was 1945 when Cameron Townsend, co-founder of Wycliffe, entered the Office of Education in Peru. The official with whom he spoke, José Borja, recalls their conversation:

“I remember the day Mr. Townsend came into my office. He presented the most ridiculous plan I have ever heard. He wanted to go into the jungle with a group of linguists. They were going to learn the language of the people, form alphabets, teach the people how to read, and translate the Bible into those languages. He wanted my blessing on this ambitious project.”

With a perplexed look, José asked him:

Who is going to do all this work?
Cameron responded: It will be done by trained linguists—young men and women with college degrees who are willing to spend their lives among indigenous peoples.
But this is a difficult task! How many are willing to go?
None yet. But when I go back to the US and challenge them, many will volunteer.
But the jungle is impossible. How will you get those people out to the villages? Do you have any planes?
Not yet. But when I share the need, God will give us enough planes.
Who will finance all this? The US government, a wealthy foundation?
No. I'll go home and tell the people of the United States about this plan. God will supply.

As he left, José stared at the strange man, thinking, “There goes the craziest white man I have ever seen in my life!” But a few months later, he was back, ready to start. All he dreamed had happened—and more. Only God could do such a mighty thing.

Cameron’s vision has turned into the largest movement of Bible translation the world has ever seen. As Wycliffe missionaries, we are excited to be part of this global mission.

What We Are Doing Now

We are currently working to find partners who will pray and invest financially in our Wycliffe ministry. On average, it takes 18-24 months for missionaries to recruit enough financial partners to cover the budget needed to go abroad. Call us crazy, but we are asking God to provide full funding by the fall when Harold’s translation consultant cohort begins.

We are strategically using the summer to share our vision with as many individuals/families, small groups, and churches as we can. Harold has recently quit his job as a software developer so we can diligently pursue this goal.

Time is short. The need is great. Bibleless people are waiting. We know that God has called us to this ministry, so we are confident He will provide—whether by the fall or at a later time.
